Amazing Birthday...Addicted to Stamps and More #189~CAS, CAS(E) this Sketch #167, STAMPlorations April CAS Challenge and Anything Goes

Hello!

Welcome to Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #189


where we're inviting you to share your CAS creations with us.  This week, we' re generously sponsored by

Prize is a $10 gift certificate

AND

Prize: 2 digital images
My card is a VERY simple number, inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #167


Since I have quite the collection of STAMPlorations products in my collection,  a couple sets came out to play:  Party Time and Mixed Media Elements


Ta dahhhhh....clean, simple, easy-peasy...and the 'thinking about it' was  longer than the making of it.The 'splatter-ish brush strokes' are Wink of Stella-ed, just for some added 'jazz and pizzazz.'  Pretty basic..but it makes me smile.


NOTE: Honoured and delighted to be a CTS Favourite. THANK YOU!!

YOUR TURN! 

See you in the gallery with your CAS creations!

For those of you who are new to card-making (welcome to the community!),
CAS means:  
clean and crisp lines, minimal or no embellishments and lots of 'white' space.
* White space does not need to be 'white'. It can be any colour. White space is a term used for the area of your card with no stamping, embellishments etc.

Thank you for spending time with me today; your visit brings me immense joy!

'Pretty basic' makes me smile! Love this sketch and love your interpretation. Great masculine card with these colors and the bold sentiment! Soften the colors and the sentiment font and you'd have the perfect girl card too!
